Hundreds of people from the political activists, members of civil society and other Kabul citizens gathered Friday to protest rocket firing by Pakistani army on the eastern areas of Afghanistan. The protesters demanded immediate stop of the shelling which has been reportedly targeting villages in the provinces of Nangarhar and Kunar after a terrorist attack killed and injured scores of innocent civilians recently at a Sufi shrine in Pakistan’s Sindh province.
Local people say that rockets fired from Pakistan still crash in their villages, although the government has said it was stopped. The protesters called on the government as well as the United Nations to stand against the shelling which was called by the former president Hamid Karzai as “blatant violation” against the Afghan national integrity.
 
Actually, this is not the first time that our national integrity is violated by the government of the neighboring country. Pakistan army had attacked residential areas in Nangarhar and Kunar with no reasons through the past years. But this time, they say that the Sindh shrine attack was planned in Afghanistan, which was followed by the closure of the Torkham and Spin Boldak cross points by the Pakistani troops.
This is clear to the government of Pakistan and to everyone involved in Afghanistan conflict that Afghanistan does not interfere in the neighboring countries’ affairs and does not let anybody use its territory against the neighbors. This is a principle of Afghanistan’s foreign policy.
